A friend of mine is in the process of buying a log cabin on a few acres in North Carolina. The cabin was originally built in the 1880's, and it was moved and rebuily in it's current location in the 1970's. All was going well with the loan process untill they called their insurance company (GEICO), and they said they wouldn't touch that house because it was so old. They consider it a high risk. Personally I think that's kinda crazy since the cabin has seen 3 centuries without a major disaster... But at any rate, can you guys suggest a major carrier who deals in these issues? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Darryl R. : ? perhaps It is just so far out of code ? I admit I don't understand this one ? Perhaps they feel that statistically the wood must have been colonized
with Carpenter Ants or Termites! Obviously it was in better than just GOOD condition when it was moved ! Good Luck Big AL
